Lens Test: Sigma 18–200mm f/3.5–6.3 II DC OS HSM

  • Excerpt: Released in October of 2011, this second iteration of Sigma’s stabilized 11.1X all-in-one zoom ($499, street) offers two seemingly significant upgrades: a high-tech FLD glass element, plus Sigma’s silent HSM focusing motor. This APS-C-only zoom is the full-frame equivalent of about 30–320mm, depending on your camera's body.

Sigma 12-24mm F/4.5-5.6 II DG HSM and Sigma 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 II DC OS HSM

  • Excerpt: Sigma 12-24mm F/4.5-5.6 II DG HSM New glass is always an exciting prospect, so I jumped at the chance to try two of Sigma’s new offerings, the first being the Sigma AF 12–24mm f/4.5–5.6 II DG HSM. The lens is a leap in design from its hugely successful predecessor. Once the lens cap is removed you’re met with an all-metal hood and hypnotised by its all-seeing eye of aspherical beauty.
  • Pros: Strong build, Great design, FLD glass means bright picture clarity, Small and light for its range, Focus rings and switches easily reached, FLD glass, Price
  • Cons: Fixed lens hood, Price, For non full-frame bodies, Plastic hood

  • Excerpt: The 18-200mm range is popular amongst those who own a camera with an APS-C sensor and wish to travel light, with the convenience of a large 11.1x zoom range.
  • Pros: Decent optical performance for a super zoom lens, Lightweight, Compact, Well built, Optical stabiliser is useful (especially given the modest maximum aperture at 200mm)
  • Cons: Slower to focus than equivalent lenses with a silent focusing motor, Sloppy manual focusing action, CA levels at wide and telelphoto

18-200 mm f/3.5-6.3 II DC OS HSM

  • Excerpt: Some years ago megazooms, so lenses with a focal length multiple amounting to more than 10, belonged to this kind of equipment which would be difficult to recommend. Older full frame 28-300 mm devices and the first 18-200 mm instruments for smaller detectors had one main advantage – their versatility. However, they also had a lot of disadvantages.
  • Cons: weak image quality on the edge of the frame at 100-200 mm focal lengths,, huge vignetting throughout the whole focal range,, weak performance against bright light,, distortion for bigger focal lengths higher than that of the competitors.

  • Summary: Najpoważniejszą konkurencję Sigma może znaleźć w Tamronie 18–270 mm VC. To obiektyw o przyzwoitych osiągach, także wyposażony w stabilizację obrazu, a jednocześnie posiadający większy zakres ogniskowych i będący 100–200 zł od Sigmy tańszy. Zakładając, że obecna cena Sigmy jest wysoka ze względu na to, że mamy do czynienia z nowością i za kilka miesięcy spadnie choć odrobinę, może być ona ciekawą propozycją dla miłośników tego typu sprzętu.
  • Pros: kompaktowe rozmiary jak na tak duży zakres ogniskowych,, bardzo dobra jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, dobra jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru dla ogniskowych 18–50 mm,, aberracja chromatyczna co najwyżej średnia,, dystorsja wyraźnie mniejsza niż u konkurencji na najszerszym kącie widzenia,, mała koma,, dobrze korygowany astygmatyzm,, przyzwoita praca autofokusa,, stabilizacja obrazu o skuteczności 3 EV,, uniwersalny zakres ogniskowych.
  • Cons: słaba jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru dla ogniskowych 100–200 mm,, duże winietowanie w całym zakresie ogniskowych,, słaba praca pod ostre światło,, dystorsja na dłuższych ogniskowych większa niż u konkurencji.
